- The Bible teaches us that all learning, knowledge, and wisdom begins with a holy reverence for God (Proverbs 9:10).
- As we reverence God, we begin to learn about God's creation around us and His plan for our lives.
- God created us to be learners. The Bible encourages us to always be learning and growing in our knowledge and wisdom.
- The Arcadia First Baptist Christian School seeks to advance learning, knowledge, and wisdom as we instill Christian values and academic excellence into the lives of our students.
- What a great joy it is for us here at AFBCS to seek to present Jesus Christ to students so that they may be drawn to Him through ministry, discipleship, and education and to encourage them through fellowship in Christ.
- We take this responsibility very seriously and look forward to what God is going to do through us and with us to advance His kingdom through the Arcadia First Baptist Christian School. Dr. Rick Smith, Senior Pastor, Administrator/Principal.

AFBCS has been a blessing it is a very challenging school which is great i believe the teachers and pastor are in it for the students because they are on every aspect of the childs education they will tell you if your child is prepared or needs more help my son loves the school they handle problems quickly with discretion your child has to put forth the effort 100% and so do the parents i have never been happier because i know my child is getting well educated i see it. Bullying is not tolerated the kids treat each other well and the teachers treat them well . The religious aspect is wonderful it teaches children to honor and respect everyone and God is a part of his schooling daily . I love that. I HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS SCHOOL a lot of times. The tuition is well worth the education my son is receiving as long as we can afford it i pray to see him graduate his senior year there. Amen
